The Zoo Keepers Night Shift

The zoo closed. All of the animals were all sleeping. BOOM, but then, all of the animals woke up from a loud noise, even the zoo keeper herd it. The zoo keeper called the police and they came to the zoo in about ten minutes. The animals went so crazy you couldn't even hear the zoo keeper talk to the police. The police went around the whole zoo, he saw someone behind a bush with a device making all these loud noises. 

The police asked him a few questions and then the cop took him over to the zoo keeper and the police told him everything the person told the cop.

All the animals went back to sleep, all the problems were sorted and everything went back to normal.

I'm riding my bike down a hill 
feeling the wind blowing into 
my face like I was 
a really fast speedboat 
going across a lake.
I had weird feeling in my head 
that I was going to fall off.
Then I saw a cat run across the road.
I got so scared like I saw a bear.

The Bike Ride

There were two men named Tony and Bob, they decided to go for a bike ride              in a forest. 

They started to ride their bikes but it started to rain but they kept on riding. They saw birds and ducks in a river beside them. 

Tony wasn't looking where he was going then BOOM he crashed. He thought that he broke his leg because he was in a lot of pain. Bob realized he had to help Tony and fast. He knew the only way to get tony out of the bush was by helicopter. Bob then looked at his phone and said to Tony, "I've got phone reception,"I can call the hospital and they can send out a helicopter. 

"OK" said Tony in a painful way. 

"I think I can see a clearing in the land up ahead", said Bob. "I'll carry you up there.

So Bob took him to the open land and placed him down carefully and they waited for the helicopter. 

The helicopter finally came so they got in the helicopter and it was a half an hour flight to the hospital.

Once they got to the hospital Tony got an x-ray of his leg but he was so lucky that nothing was broken.
